Royal Marine (?) badge ID

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Need help in ID'ing this badge: This is the info, badge made by the Germans, during WW2, and issued to Royal Marines prisoners of war.
    The badge is 46mm across, die-struck from a grey metal alloy and fitted with a horizontal, brooch-type fastener.
    Why the Royal Marines should be singled out to have badges made for them in P.o.W camps, I cannot guess, unless the prisoners themselves took the initiative.

    Any help on the ID and if story is true.
    Thanks.
